For Immediate Release
Applications open for Early Years admissions
Applications are now open for children due to start pre-school in 2021, Powys County Council has said.
Parents or carers of children born between 1 September 2017 and 31 August 2018 can apply for a place in an early year setting ready to start in 2021.
Applications must be completed and submitted by Friday, June 26, 2020.
The Welsh Government funds the council to ensure that all children in Powys have access to free part-time early years education from the beginning of the term following the child’s third birthday.
Each qualifying child can receive a maximum of 10 hours per week of funded early years education if they attend an approved, funded pre-school education setting.
Children eligible for free part time education will only receive the funded place if they are attending an approved funded pre-school education setting.
Cllr Phyl Davies, Cabinet Member for Education, said: “All parents and carers should complete this application as soon as possible to ensure that their child has a place at their preferred early years / pre-school setting next year.
“If it is not completed in time, this this may jeopardise their child’s place at their preferred setting.”
